Background notes: Maid Marian is one of the characters from the original Robin Hood mythology. In the Disney version, she first appeared in the cartoon Robin Hood in 1973 (voice by Monica Evans), and like the rest of the cast, it has been the only appearance in cartoons so far. Like the original stories, Maid Marian was an important character, but only as the hero's sweetheart and the damsel in distress.

In comics, she appeared with the rest of the cast in the comic book adaption of the cartoon from Gold Key in 1973, and appeared in the following series The Adventure of Robin Hood which lasted seven issues from 1974 to 1976. After the series folded, only a few Robin Hood stories were made during the late 1970s and the 1980s. In these, Maid Marian only appeared a few times.

A few items of merchandise has been seen, but for the most part, the character hasn't been seen in other media.
